The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) has commissioned Economic Insight to develop an evaluation framework for its Looking to the Future (LTTF) reforms.  The LTTF reforms, which will be implemented in November 2019 in full, bring about far reaching changes to the legal services market and the way consumers will be able to access legal services.  The evaluation framework will provide guidance to the SRA on how best to monitor and evaluate the impact of these reforms once they are implemented later in the year.
